Really? I thought that if you changed motherboards, you'd have to get it re-activated... Cuz i swapped HDD's once already (used Norton Ghost for this), and i figured that it just accepted the new HDD, since I didn't switch motherboards. Cuz I thought OEM locked onto your mobo serial number in prebuilt systems (cuz that's what I have). Maybe I won't have to put a new OS on my new build...(although, I most likely would, that way if I ever had to use this one, I could just turn her on).

like i said, i went with two completely different motherboards and had no problems. just make sure you uninstall the drivers cleanly. i dont htink windows cares what mobo you have, or if you switch it out or whatever.

Ah, ok. Well I had heard that you'd have to call MS in order to reactivate it if you were switching motherboards with an OEM version of Windows.

I did ask, but nobody gave me an answer on here xD. On another forum, they told me it wouldn't be enough, since I'd be powering an 8800/c2d/multiple HDD's/optical drives xD. I'd rather have more than enough power than too little tho...
